Chalkboard roundup to help with ideas for your empty space that needs something!
That happens to me all the time. Of course, sometimes that empty space is my belly and I need ice cream.
This is a DIY home decor blog, so no ice cream for now.
If there’s one thing that fits in almost any space, it’s a chalkboard. They hang on the wall, stand easel like on their own. make an old frame gorgeous or take on their own shape.
Chalkboards that hang
This is actually three pieces of scrap wood turned into skinny chalkboards. Inspired by a TV show!
This long chalkboard is very easy to make. Simply paint a board with my favorite chalkboard paint. Then glue a piece of molding along the top.
This extra-large calendar chalkboard cost $25 to make. The most used chalkboard in our home.
Chalkboards roundup in frames
This awesome thrift store frame was turned into a chalkboard, and there’s two!
This little chalkboard is easy to make. The technique is just as easy for larger framed chalkboards
I made this several years ago and haven’t updated the post, but the idea is so easy. Use two chalkboards the same size and drill holes along the top edge. Then “sew” burlap ribbon through the holes. Open the bottom and stand as a chalkboard easel. I also added a spindle to the top edge.
I made another chalkboard easel for our clubhouse.
This baby crib chalkboard was used for a local vintage event.
Shaped & Unique Chalkboards
Years ago, I made and sold home decor to local shops. Shaped chalkboards were always a hit. This swimsuit chalkboard is the only one I’ve made for the website.
This unique sliding chalkboard idea is tons of fun. You lift the spindle handle to reveal the message in the window.
If you enjoy watching DIY videos, this one is chalkboard based project.
I hope you enjoyed this chalkboard roundup and found something for that empty spot.
